Ah, the infamous "Saban Moon," crushing the hopes and dreams of fans everywhere.
For those that don't know, Toon Makers produced a Sailor Moon pilot for an American audience back in 1994. It was a live-action/CG/hand-drawn animation hybrid that does little to resemble the original anime that was eventually dubbed into English by DiC. It sort of feels like a cross between Power Rangers, She-ra, and . . . Princess Gwenevere, maybe? The actual pilot never aired of course, but a presentation reel has long been available via youtube.

The reason this pops into my head now is because a lot of production cels have recently turned up on eBay. I'm ashamed to admit that I sort of want one.
